According to Bill Simmons, who joined Mike Francesa on WFAN Sports Radio, the head of the Ball Family may now be getting paid to not speak about everything that comes to his mind, especially if it has something to do with LeBron James and the Lakers.

Francesa responded with “that’s a big prediction that he’s going to disappear because he’s usually very chatty.”

“Remember when Serena’s dad was an issue for a long time and then all of a sudden we kind of never heard from him anymore,” Simmons continued. “I have a feeling that’s where this is going to go. He’ll be getting a nice paycheck to not really be heard from that much.”

“Put him on the payroll to basically not talk and not make a big deal out of things,” said Simmons. “The other thing is…as Trump found out recently. You don’t want to be on the other side against LeBron. LeBron is the most popular team sports athlete we have had in America since I don’t know when. Anything he does people are all in at this point. LaVar Ball is losing against LeBron.”

If true, this would make for quite the story.
